Audrey Nakad first realized the importance of tutoring when she tutored fellow students at Concordia University, Canada while she was pursuing her undergrad studies in finance. “I noticed that my students not only outperformed their peers in their courses but they started liking the material after taking sessions with me” explains this young entrepreneur who came back to Lebanon six years later with an idea for a startup.
“One day my sister came to me with this problem: she couldn’t find a qualified tutor to help her out with her study material. When she did find someone, they were either super expensive or had a very busy schedule. I then realized that when I graduated from university, it was also tough for me as a tutor to get in touch with students,” recounts Audrey who then decided, with her sister, to create the Uber for private tutoring: Synkers.
